Swissvale Man Shot, Found Dead At Bottom Of Staircase

SWISSVALE (KDKA) -- Police are investigating a fatal shooting in Swissvale.

Ryan Beal, 27, was found dead at the bottom of a staircase inside of his house.

He lived in an upstairs apartment in the 7400-block of Duquesne Avenue.

A man living in the downstairs unit found him upon returning home at 6 a.m.

A neighbor told KDKA she was awakened by what she believes were six to seven gunshots.

"I was awoken by six or seven, what appeared to be, gunshots," she said.

She says the street was filled with police cars when she woke up.

"It's scary, you know, it makes you wonder and just hope for the best that nothing else comes of this," the neighbor said. "This is a very quiet street. This is the first time something like this has happened here in a long time."

An autopsy Sunday concluded the man died of a gunshot wound to the head and trunk.

The case is being investigated as a homicide.

No arrests have been made.
